After his father's death, DeForest soon distinguished himself by excelling in business, first with a successful dry goods business, and later as a premiere banker. During his long banking career, he served as the president of the First National Bank of Valparaiso.

He also devoted significant energy to local and state politics, representing his community as a state senator from 1874 - 1878 and as a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions in Cincinnati (1880) and St. Louis (1888).

During his lifetime, his peers recognized him as a community leader, and he and his family was held in high esteem.

After DeForest's death, his son, Leslie Reid Skinner, donated land for Graceland Cemetery, and DeForest's remains were transferred from the Valparaiso Old City Cemetery to Graceland.

Note on the grave stone inscription: Although the inscription reads "Leslie DeForest Skinner," throughout his lifetime he used the name "DeForest Leslie Skinner," so he is identified as such here on Find A Grave.

He was buried in February 1902 at Graceland Memorial Park, Valparaiso, Porter Co., IN, Findagrave #70443177.
